Giuliani describes forewarning of WTC tower collapse
At around 1:00, Giuliani told Jennings that he had forewarning of the buildings otherwise-unexpected collapse. He said, "I went down to the scene and we set up, uh, headquarters at 75 Barkley Street, which was right there with the police commissioner and the fire commissioner, the head of emergency management. And we were operating out of there when we were told that the World Trade Center was gonna collapse."

ABC News Network Coverage
Continuing coverage from the late Peter Jennings and colleagues. Coverage centers around the President and his location/safety during this segment.
Portion of Pool Report from ABC's Anne Compton with Peter Jennings beginning about 13 minutes into the segment:
"Peter it has been a frightening couple of hours for President Bush"...
"The White House was unable to tell us where we were headed or how long it would take"...
"We were high enough so that the Air Force was able to catch some television signals"...
"I thought the President not only looked grim but very solemn, and his eyes looked very red"...
Anne Compton: "Peter we are leaving"
Peter Jennings: "Where are you going Annie?"
Anne Compton: "Peter, I have no idea"
Incredible coverage once again on an infamous day. I continue to find it nothing short of pathetic and sad that individuals wish to use their freedom of speech to speculate that some grand Government conspiracy was in effect on this day. The simple fact is that many things were caught in time in the past to prevent tragedies - this time we were not as fortunate.

Interesting to note that at about 19:51 into the video Rudy Giuliani says "...we were told that the World Trade Center was gonna collapse and it did collapse..."
Foreknowledge of collapse??
